(Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director and President Executive Officer: Naomi Taniguchi) announced on May 24, 2024, “The Logic of Determination.” We will publish “If you think strategically, the path you will take will be determined automatically” (written by Shinji Ishimaru).

* ◆“Book of Courage” sent by Shinji Ishimaru, the mayor who has become a hot topic for his blunt statements*
Since taking office as the mayor of Akitakada, Hiroshima Prefecture in August 2020, Shinji Ishimaru, a unique mayor, has been in the news for his blunt statements.
He denounced the members of the Diet for falling asleep on social media and shouted, “Shame on you, shame on you!” against the dysfunctional parliament.
There has been a fierce exchange with local media.
Related clipping videos on YouTube have been viewed over 300 million times in total.

* At a press conference on May 10, 2024, Mr. Ishimaru announced that he would not run in the next mayoral election, and attention is focused on Mr. Ishimaru’s future movements. *

What have you been thinking and thinking over the past four years? Why are they able to confront various problems so strongly? This is a book that explains how one’s resolve is “determined” through actual episodes and Mr. Ishimaru’s unique strategic thinking.

I want to fulfill my responsibilities, I want to act without fear of conflict, I want to change something.
At times like these, by learning about the mayor’s thought process in this book, you will be able to find a certain courage that is different from blind passion and impulse.

It has been well received even before its release, and it has now been decided that it will be reprinted before its release. * Over 26,000 copies sold. *

* ◆What is your “logic” when running for mayor? *
In my opinion, the ideal politician is someone who can firmly adhere to the idea that “good is good and bad is bad.” Don’t be afraid to speak the truth, that is, make reasonable arguments, and think and act logically.
If you don’t aim for the ideal image, just let someone else do it for you. I seriously wanted to become that kind of politician because I was going to do it myself.
That’s how I decided to run for mayor.
(snip)
I suddenly said, “I’m running for mayor,” and returned home for the first time in 20 years. I had never participated in a local election campaign before, and I didn’t even have a support group when I ran for office, but to be honest, I expected I would win.
(snip)
If I, who are free from the constraints of the past, emerge as someone who can advocate “new politics” and cut off the tide of political corruption, there is a chance of victory. I expected that, so I quit my job.
(snip)
On the other hand, I thought that even if things didn’t work out, it wouldn’t be difficult to find a replacement job. In other words, the losses were limited to the individual’s life. Furthermore, it is a phenomenon in which the number of unemployed people increases temporarily in society.
It wasn’t until I built this kind of logic that I was able to resolve that “I can do it, and I should do it.”
(Excerpt from text P20-27)
